Balraj Khanna: A Retrospective at Gallery Elena Shchukina (23 Nov – 24 Jan)

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Gallery Elena Shchukina presents a retrospective exhibition of mixed media paintings by Balraj Khanna. Opening on the 55th anniversary of Khanna’s arrival in the UK, the exhibition will celebrate the Punjab-born artist’s prolific career.

Khanna’s first exhibition in London took place in 1965 and the exhibition goes back to that time, showcasing works from 1967 onwards, including landmark pieces such as African Queen (1970), and Green Belt, first shown at the Serpentine Gallery in 1979. These early works are displayed alongside Khanna’s most recent project, an array of small paintings created in the months leading up to the exhibition.

Amidst the diversity, we can find a continuity in Khanna’s ouvre. Textured, shimmering grounds of sand and primer, populated by cut-out silhouettes of toys and otherworldly characters, form the underpinning narrative of Khanna’s practice, punctuated by short departures which allow Khanna to draw from new sources of inspiration and expand his painterly world. As Robin Dutt once wrote:

‘Khanna has been tenaciously loyal to a particular discipline – making art out of childhood memories and everyday events, representing emotion in a way which curiously embraces abstraction and figuration in equal measure’

Gallery Elena Shchukina presents Amelie Ducommun’s Sensitive Water Mapping

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Gallery Elena Shchukina presents the first-ever UK exhibition for Amélie Ducommun.

The exhibition features works from the artist’s latest series Sensitive Water Mapping, exploring her long-standing interest in questions of time and memory, as experienced through the perception of the natural landscape. Driven by a constant search for the new, a “need to arrive at a place where everything needs to be felt for the first time”, Ducommun draws creative inspiration from discovering new panoramas and unfamiliar geographies.

Sensitive Water Mapping continues Gallery Elena Shchukina’s ongoing programme of exhibitions exploring our relationship with nature, with past shows by Allan Forsyth, Luke Jerram, Seung-Hwan Oh, Kyosuke Tchinai and Xawery Wolski.

Mario Vélez’ Canto Rodado (Boulder) at Gallery Elena Shchukina from 22nd September

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Gallery Elena Shchukina is delighted to announce Canto Rodado, an exhibition of painting, drawing, and sculpture by Mario Vélez, opening 22nd September 2016. mar

With a field of reference that spans Colombian history from the pre-Columbian era through today, Mario Vélez interprets Latin American visual culture through the lens of abstract and expressionist art.  His work lies in the tradition of geometric abstraction pioneered by Kandinsky and Af Klint, but his idiosyncratic motifs and colour choices are inspired by the natural and built environments of Colombia.  He balances a cerebral focus on formal geometry with a playful, organic use of shape and colour.

Mario Vélez describes his artistic aim as being ‘to reconnect, in some ways, to the primeval status of our culture – to embrace once more the essence of the past.’
